About the event

Direct Booking Summit

What is the Direct Booking Summit?

The Direct Booking Summit is the world’s first and largest direct booking event, attracting revenue managers and decision makers from hotels across the globe. This is truly the most comprehensive arena available to discuss the challenges facing hoteliers today.

Over the course of two days, we bring our delegates talks and workshops from over 25 industry experts on topics ranging from negotiating with OTAs to digital marketing tips, and everything in between. This year’s line-up is a hand-picked selection of carefully curated content, all delivered with empowering the hotelier in mind.

Come to the summit to benchmark, strategise, and network with likeminded professionals – and walk away with invaluable knowledge. Unlike any other event or expo, our sole focus is to empower the hotelier to take back control of their online presence.

This is the Direct Booking Summit’s third year after launching in 2016.

Where does the event take place?

This year’s events started off in Amsterdam on the 27th-28th June 2018, and will come to Dallas on the 3rd-4th October 2018. We are hosting our first ever Asia-Pacific event on 27-28 February 2019 in Singapore.

In previous years we have taken the Summit to Barcelona, New York, London and Washington D.C.

Who runs the Direct Booking Summit?

The Direct Booking Summit is lovingly organised by Triptease. At Triptease, we believe that Direct is Best. We started the Direct Booking Summit back in 2016 as a way to bring hoteliers together under one movement. Since then, the Direct Booking Movement has gone global.
